Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Unbeaten from his three starts to date, landing a valuable race at Doha when last seen in February. This is by far his toughest assignment to date, however, and he is expected to find at least a couple too strong.
Unbeaten in 3 starts, the latest a valuable 1m event in Qatar; should have more to do here

Course Winner - Won before at this course
Winner of a five-furlong novice race at this venue on his debut last April. Justified prohibitive odds to score at Wolverhampton on his reappearance last month. This demands significantly more, but he should have improvement to come over this trip.
Well on top here last April and, after knee injury, at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) recently

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Kept on well to break his maiden tag in a seven-furlong novice race at Newbury in July. Beaten at odds of 1/7 on his next start, however, and even if returning to his best form today, a marked step up is needed to trouble the best of these.
Won at Newbury (7f, good to firm) last July but beaten when 1-7 at Ffos Las (good to soft)

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Winner of a Group 1 at Longchamp on his final start last season. That form has worked out well since, with the second Broome winning a Group 3 by eight lengths on his return earlier this month. Forgiven his run on dirt at Meydan in January; respected.
Won 1m at Longchamp (good) on final 2yo start; flopped at Meydan (dirt) in January

2 x Distance Winner - Won 2 times before at this distance
Justified favouritism to land a novice race at Kempton on his debut in December, and he built on that performance to score at Newcastle when last seen in January. This is a tough assignment for his debut on turf, however.
Short-priced wins at Kempton in December and Newcastle (again 1m on AW) in January

Course Winner - Won before at this course
Belied odds of 33/1 to land a seven-furlong novice race at this venue on his debut in September. Has not been seen since that success, but the third has subsequently won a Group 3, so the form looks strong. Fascinating contender, but he is inexperienced.
33-1 for debut in maiden here (7f, good to firm) in September but won by 2l

Hot Recent Form Jockey - 9 wins from 28 in the last 14 days (32%)
Finished a close second in a Group 3 at York in August, but he disappointed back in that grade at Sandown afterwards. Last seen landing a novice race at Leicester in October. Raced keenly as a juvenile, and he needs to settle better to be competitive here.
Ideally he'd settle this time but best form (Gr 3 second) makes him one to take seriously

Not unsupported in the market for a novice race at Kempton on his debut in November, and he went on to score by two lengths. The second let that form down somewhat, however, when finishing well down the field at Newbury on Friday.
Won novice at Kempton (7f, AW) in November; single-figure odds for the 2,000 Guineas
